Our photodiodes cover a broad spectral range, from near-infrared and ultraviolet wavelengths to high-energy regions. Photodiodes are available in metal, ceramic, and plastic packages, as well as module types. Custom designs are also available.
APDs are photodiodes with internal gain produced by the application of a reverse voltage. They have a higher signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) than PIN photodiodes, as well as fast time response, low dark current, and high sensitivity. Spectral response range is typically within 200 - 1150 nm.
The photo IC is an intelligent optical sensor with diverse functions and integrates a photodiode with signal processing IC in the same package.
Our Multi-Pixel Photon Counter (MPPC), also known as silicon photomultiplier (SiPM), is a solid state photomultiplier comprised of a high density matrix of Geiger-mode-operated avalanche photodiodes also known as SPAD (single-photon avalanche photodiode). These SPADs have high internal gain which enable single photon detection. The Hamamatsu SiPM features low dark count, high photon detection efficiency, excellent timing resolution, low bias voltage operation, ruggedness, resistance to excess light, and immunity to magnetic fields. They are well-suited to single photon counting and other ultra-low light applications.
PMTs suitable for applications that require high speed, low noise, and high gain. Our PMTs include bare tubes, assemblies, and modules offering a wide selection of photosensitive areas and spectral responses.

Sensors used for distance measurement and position detection. Suitable for many applications, such as LiDAR.
Image splitting optics provide one pair of dual wavelength images to cameras.
The world's first camera to incorporate the qCMOS image sensor. The camera achieves the ultimate in quantitative imaging.
Since the 1980s, Hamamatsu Photonics has continued to develop high-sensitivity, low-noise cameras using its unique camera design technology and has always contributed to the development of cutting-edge scientific and technological research. Now, we are proud to release the ORCA-Quest with ultimate performance. The C15550-20UP is the world's first camera to incorporate the qCMOS image sensor and to be able to resolve the number of photoelectrons using a newly developed dedicated technology. The camera achieves the ultimate in quantitative imaging.
A leader in the scientific CMOS camera revolution, Hamamatsu has a camera to fit almost any budget or application.
The CCD cameras capture optical signals with high-sensitive.
EM-CCDs revolutionized low-light imaging with on-chip amplification. Even with advances in CMOS, EM-CCD cameras with large pixels and back-thinned sensitivity are the best choice for extremely low-light, low-background applications. Refined over numerous generations for superior usability, these cameras offer fine control of camera features and image quality.
InGaAs cameras bridge the gap between NIR wavelengths in the 950-1700 nm range, where silicon detectors are no longer sensitive. Our products capture images with QVGA to VGA resolution and our extensive experience with InGaAs sensors allows us to offer cameras with exquisite image contrast and quality.
High-speed imaging of moving samples is a challenging even in bright conditions, but our TDI cameras turn linear movement of the sample into an advantage by coordinating signal accumulation in the sensor with sample movement. These cameras are also well-suited for low-light scanning applications that are too dim to for a line scan sensor.
